Silver Rainbow LGBTI Ageing & Aged Care

Silver Rainbow
LGBTI Ageing & Aged Care


Silver Rainbow provides national coordination and support activities promoting the well-being of LGBTI elders and the ongoing delivery of the LGBTI awareness training to the aged care sector.

Silver Rainbow was formed in 2013 to initially respond to the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy. Silver Rainbow works collaboratively with the government, aged care providers and related services, LGBTI older people and elders and organisations to create an LGBTI inclusive aged care sector. We do this through providing policy and program advice to the Department of Health and the ageing and aged care sector and working in partnership with LGBTI organisations and individuals across Australia and internationally.

Honouring those who carried this work ahead of us…

We pay our respects to those who have worked to improve the health and well being of their peers. We honour people and organisations in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people’s bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent. Thank you for having the courage to be yourself and to strive for health across the lifespan.
